What a fabulous venue! My ceremony was at the Reflecting Pool and the reception was at the Galleries. I mean, I knew that Winterthur was a beautiful estate however the evening just took my breath away. My wedding was on 10/11/15 and the color of the trees were the most amazing shade. The reflecting pool was gorgeous, there was so much greenery in it still. The staff was equally as amazing, the service was great, I have to say that I cannot think of one thing that went wrong. So many of my guests came up to me to comment on how picturesque the entire wedding was. I am so lucky!

Winterthur was absolutely amazing!! The grounds are so beautiful. I was supposed to have my ceremony at the reflecting pool but unfortunately it rained. We had it in the Gallery and it was just as beautiful. Melissa and Lauren were great! They are so attentive and made sure my every wish was granted. They really know how to treat you like a King and Queen. Also, the food is phenomenal! Everyone at my wedding made it a point to tell me how wonderful their meal was. The short ribs and italian wedding soup are both to die for!!!! I cannot thank you enough for everything and making my day so special and memorable.

Spectacular!!! We just celebrated our daughter’s wedding at Winterthur. The director of food services for Restaurant Associates, Ken Warner, and his professional team insured the perfect wedding. Ken genuinely enjoys his job and made the evening exceptional! All details from the minute we arrived on property were handled with precision. The last minute changes in table assignments and accommodations for my 91 year old mother were handled quietly and with smiles and encouragement from the staff. On Friday afternoon, the Mother of the Groom brought 110 DOZEN cookies for a cookie table. The presentation of these cookies was done in a tasteful and elegant display.

Gary Coyle and Matt Anderson, the executive and sous chef respectively, presented food that was not only delicious and well seasoned but beautifully displayed. Accommodations were made for every guest that had an allergy or special food request. The quality of the food was evident. The appetizers served after the wedding ceremony at the reflecting pool were nothing short of outstanding. They were so flavorful and elegantly presented. It was the start of our gastronomic delight!

Alex was my daughter’s personal assistant. The minute the bride arrived Alex was at her beck and call for any and every request. Her kind nature and professional experience was so comforting for the nervous bride.

It is now three weeks since the wedding and I still am getting daily calls or emails from our friends raving about the job well done. It just doesn't get any better than this! Bravo Winterthur.

As if the spectacular event wasn’t enough, having the wedding in Delaware has a financial benefit as well. No sales tax!!!

If you are looking for a spectacular wedding venue with amazing service, Winterthur is hands down the best place in the greater Philadelphia region. Our coordinator Melissa made it easy every step of the way and kept us at ease. Multiple guests told us it was the best wedding they've ever been to. I highly recommend Winterthur as a wedding site.

We pulled up to Winterthur in December to check it out as a potential venue, met Ken Warner & the rest was history! He was the most welcoming, kind, patient man I've ever met (next to my husband of course).Ken could see how important it was to me to transform the place into my "secret garden".As he gave us a tour on the groggy day, suddenly the weather didn't matter & we could see the beauty in the place & we just knew it was our venue.Ken promised me that he would be there every step of the way & be there on our wedding day.Boy did he do that and beyond! Ken totally got my vision and worked with us and when I walked into the venue the night of our wedding I was brought to tears. It was the most beautiful thing I'd ever seen and every detail was perfect. It was put together with such love. Our guests not only couldn't get over the outrageous food, but they continued to mention to us how incredible all the staff were.They were fun, outgoing, & enjoying the wedding with us.I can't begin to explain how Ken was such an key part of our success from start to finish. He kept his word from the day I met him and answered my endless bride emails; all with warmth and patience. About a week out I saw the forecast & was really bummed because I knew in my gut we would not be able to have cocktail hour outside.Ken sent me back the most heartfelt email about how it will be beautiful no matter what & shared how the most important part is Kevin & my union & ensured he would make inside gorgeous. And RAIN it did, but our guests said they never would have known I hadn't originally planned it to be inside. I could talk all day about Ken and the staff at Winterthur. Their love and attention to our wedding made it the best day of our lives! I guess it was an omen that we toured it misty and then we had the downpour our day. But I have to tell you...it didn't matter. Not one bit. The beauty of Winterthur stole everyone's hearts & ours. From the bottom of our hearts,Liz & Kevin Gianfortune

We had my daughter's wedding here on May 23,2015 all I can say is it was a magical ceremony near the reflecting pool! Between the perfect weather, the site and the Kenny I music playing as my daughter walked down the steps it was breathtaking! The reception in the visitors center was equally amazing, the food the tables all was wonderful and exceeded every expectation. The Team of persons we worked with and the bride and groom worked with made the day go smoothly and allowed us and our guests to have a memorable day!
